Livonia Lunch & Learns
Livonia Alumni are coming back to school for our current students! The latest Education to Employment offering for students kicks off in October and will be offered each month through May during all high school and middle school lunch periods. Our next speaker is:

He graduated from Alfred State College with an AAS Degree in Construction Engineering Technology. He has 23 years of construction experience. There is a growing need for more students to enter the trades as a career. Jeff will talk about careers in Estimating and Project Management, Heavy Equipment Operators, Masons, Laborers and Foreman. Come find out about all the opportunities in the field.
Wednesday, February 6, Jason Helker, Shop Manager with Swan ET, will be here to talk about his career path in construction. The construction trades need more people and Jason will be here to talk about rewarding careers in Shop Management and Heavy Equipment and Vehicle Repair Mechanics. If you like working with your hands and don't want to be in an office all day, come find out how a career in construction just might be what you have been looking for. Sign up in the counseling center.
Wednesday, March 6, Mark Whitford, a 1998 Livonia graduate, will be here to talk about his career path as a lawyer. Mark's original college plan was in engineering and along the way shifted to law. Everyone has a unique career path. Come learn more about being a lawyer. Sign up in the counseling center.
Wednesday, April 10, Nathan Benetez will be here to talk about his career in IT and Security. He graduated from Livonia in 1997 and joined the military. Come to the Lunch and Learn to find out how he went from the military to IT professional. An interesting career path, for sure. Sign up in the counseling center.
Students may join them during lunch as they discuss their careers. Students learn about a typical day, hear about paths to employment, industry outlooks, salary potential, how their current course work relates to the real world and more! Sign-ups are in the Middle School office or with Mrs. Pease and in the High School counseling center.
The job shadow requirement which all freshman, sophomores, and juniors need to fulfill can be done through the L3 experience. Attendance is taken at all Lunch and Learns and the hours spent will be credited toward the job shadow requirement. Each L3 attended will count for 30 minutes of job shadow. Students must be prompt and attend the entire presentation for it to count for job shadowing hours.
If you are or know alumni who might be interested in presenting for L3, please contact us via email or phone using the information provided at our Lunch and Learns webpage. It is a once time commitment (small groups in a conference room - three, thirty minute lunch periods - one day). Our students are inspired by our Livonia graduates. Please consider coming in or we can set up a video conference.
